I’d rather teen girls reading nothing but terribly written fanfics about their favorite OTPs that express healthy and emotionally-sound romantic relationships than “great literature” that teaches them they are prizes to be won or creatures to be controlled or destroyed.
the dumbest thing is when parents say “this isnt how i raised you” like ?????? yes it really is you literally raised me and here i am
i reblog this every single time
this is my favorite post on this whole website
Fun fact: (genetic) men see fewer shades of red than (genetic) women do because the gene that allows for the color perception of red exists only on the X chromosome, so women have twice the red-perception powers. The theory is, because women were typically gatherers, they needed to be able to tell the difference between poisonous berries and non-poisonous ones based on their color. (source)
So, to a man, something may appear to be simply red. But to a woman, it can be ruby, brick, rust, maroon, crimson… or blood orange.
I’m a woman an this is fuckin red.
